Dead Cross (ex-Slayer, Faith No More, etc.) will release their debut album on August 4, but it looks like they are already working new material beyond the effort. Dave Lombardo confirmed the news to Metal Wani, saying that the band was in need of extra material for their upcoming North American tour.
Lombardo said the following:
“…He [Mike Patton] didn’t know if he wanted to tour with the band, but it turns out that he loves the music so much that he thought it’d be a good idea for us to do some shows. We’re very grateful for that too. We have to embrace it and enjoy it while it’s here, because who knows, maybe in a few months he’s not going to want to tour, or anything else.
It seems like things are on a positive note and we’re going to do some more touring, and at this moment we’re writing more music to add to our set, because the set is only 30 minutes, so we need to add another 10 minutes, so probably another five songs!”
